AD won a ring. He's fulfilled his potential.

he had GOAT hype


Maybe from buffoons, sure, but not from people who actually watch basketball.

I could see that because steph and KD were hurt. But with them playing top 5 is in concrete IMO

Lbj
Kd
Steph
Kawhi
Giannis


Your first 3 are concrete. Kawhi and Giannis not so much. I’d take Harden, Luka & Jokic over Kawhi. Probably Embiid too.


meh those guys haven't done anything to be ranked ahead of Kawhi at this point. Harden will never be better than him.

Neymar’s a clear top 3 player year in and year out. AD’s very good but he’s a half step down from that. LeBron, Giannis, Kawhi, and Steph have all been clearly better over the last 5 years.
